Healthcare Academy Reaches Tomorrow’s Leaders

Key NorthBay Healthcare staff were on hand to share information about working in the field of medicine during the 2018 “Care Café” event sponsored by the Fairfield Police Activities League (PAL).

NorthBay is connecting with local schools and community programs, through the new Healthcare Academy program, with the goal of inspiring the emergency responders of tomorrow.

NorthBay Trauma Center and the Fairfield PAL team up on the fourth Monday of each month at the PAL “Career Café” program to conduct presentations, provide hands-on activities, answer questions and provide resources to students. The hour-long presentations are reaching a unique demographic of youth that might not otherwise connect with health career programs offered in Solano County high schools.

NorthBay Healthcare ambassadors reach out to the students with the goal of:

Creating opportunities for high school students to learn about educational and financial opportunities available to pursue a career in health care;

Positioning students to interface directly with members of the health care field in order to help them determine if health care is a viable career choice for them; and

Seeking out students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to explore health care as a career choice.
